Here is a quick demo:

To enable that, I selected the "keymap" Keyboard option with the updated doc/fr/clavier-exemple.txt

The patch is attached. I produced it using

git format-patch master --stdout > improved-kbd-support.patch

I'm not sure how to split that though, sorry! For next changes I will try to split things better.

That's easiest if you commit your changes in small logical steps. It's much easier to afterwards
group small changes to larger ones, and skip
ones that turned out to be non-relevant ones,
	git rebase -i <start commit>

Than to split large changes into smaller ones

For this change I think it's much easier to read the keymap.c file as a whole.

It still contains remains of SDL v1 support.

Please rebase the changes to the latest Hatari code.

I did a diff between your and current keymap.c
version (attached).

thanks for posting the diff

For your intended change to be reviewable, please
split all non-functional & unrelated code changes
(white space/indenting, const, ! -> ==0, type
changes, commenting out trace outputs) to
a separate patch, or remove them.

Then either rebase your changes to latest Hatari
git version of keymap.c, or otherwise make sure
they apply and still work with it, before posting
a patch / "git diff" against it.
looking at the diff you posted, I don't see that much unrelated
changes, there're a few indents changes here and there, but seeing
the patch is rather big it looks ok to me if some indents or some log
levels are changed to fit the patch, but nothing that seems to
prevent from reviewing the changes.

Also, keymap.c was last modified in dec 2019, so I guess the patch
should apply to dev version without loosing code.

As for reviewing/testing the patch itself, unfortunately I don't have
time at the moment. Maybe Thomas can have a look at it if he got time.
I just had a quick look, but the patch is indeed rather big. Any chance
that you could split it up logically into more digestible parts (i.e.
multiple patches)? Also, there are still cosmetic changes in here (like
the last hunk that changes "if (!keycode)" into "if (keycode == 0)"
etc.) ... that really should either be dropped or put into separate
clean-up patches.

As a french user of Hatari, this looks like an interesting patch
anyway, as some characters are indeed "hard" to enter by default.
I have to say that I hardly use the keymapping stuff on my own, since
the German keyboard layout is pretty similar to the US layout anyway
and since I normally only edit my files on the host side and avoid text
editors in the emulated environment. So Nicolas, it would be great if
you could have a look at these modifications if they make sense from a
French keyboard user perspective.


PS: Would it help if we'd remove the SDL1.2 support first? I guess
keymap.c would be simplified quite a bit by that removal...
